This improvisation on 'Happy Birthday' by Yuri Bashmet and the Moscow Soloists will put a spring in your step
There are endless covers of Happy Birthday on the internet, but this particular performance from Yuri Bashmet and the Moscow Soloists is like none we've ever heard before.
During their concert at the Verbier Festival on 23rd July, the ensemble performed a toe-tapping, Russian-inspired variation on the tune to a delighted audience. We'd love to hear this when we celebrate our on our 25th birthday
